FINAL SHOWS - WE MUST CLOSE 11/15! Celebrate the end of the Halloween season with your favorite rookie FBI agent, brilliant cannibal and fashionable serial killer at SILENCE! THE MUSICAL - the hilarious and raunchy satire that shattered box-office records at the 2005 FringeNYC Festival.

Fueled by a rabid cult following since songs like “Are you About a Size 14?” debuted online in 2002, SILENCE! THE MUSICAL is now a tasty treat of a show complete with Buffalo Bill gleefully dancing a hoedown while kidnapping a hapless Catherine Martin; and Dr. Lecter, scary as ever, singing about the life he’s like to lead someday outside the prison walls.

CONTAINS EXPLICIT LANGUAGE. MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY.

Regular performances are Thursdays & Fridays at 8pm, Saturdays at 4 & 8pm, and Sundays at 4pm.

Creative Loafing Tampa gave it 4.5 stars and said that "[It] entertains from curtain to curtain call with clever jokes, outlandish sight gags and sassy song and dance … one of those shows that’s so fun, you’ll wish were onstage with the cast … Silence! will go down among Jobsite’s all-time best.”

“smells like a winner … Silence! The Musical is a triumph of imagination and a wickedly riotous send-up of the beloved novel and film.” – The Tampa Tribune

“a ‘drop everything and don’t miss it’ show for those like me who have seen The Silence of the Lambs … the show had moments that made me almost fall out of my chair laughing … edgy, campy, delightedly inappropriate and quite proud of its own vulgarity. It makes The Book of Mormon look like The Sound of Music.” – BroadwayWorld.com

"solid and silly, also not for the faint of heart ... [Jobsite's] splashiest show of the season, and its most controversial ... [an] inventive take ... a lot of the feel-good elements found in the best musicals are present here" - Tampa Bay Times

Theatre Tampa Bay RECOMMENDED!
